It all started on May 1917 There was a time when homoeopathy was very popular in Bengal, the " Nursery of Homoeopathy " in India. But there was dearth of books in Bengali on homoeopathy. So to spread homoeopathy among the people, who had little knowledge of English, a young Bengali entrepreneur Prafulla Chandra Bhar started a homoeopathic journal in Bengali titled "Hahnemann" and "Hahnemann Publishing Company" came into existence. The need to supply quality homoeopathic medicines at a reasonable price was being felt constantly and therefore taking this in observance the company started a separate wing for Medicine in the year 1922. With passage of time this small beginning became gradually bigger and earned reputation for quality medicines.
